b'SUCH A TERRIFIC LOCATION Our conference hotel is the newly renovated San Antonio Marriott Rivercenterwith sidebyside ballrooms for general sessionsand exhibits. There is a River Shuttle (boat) departure point basically at the bottom of the hotel escalators. The main building of the hotel towers above the Shops at Rivercenter, a multi level urban mall with plenty of popular restaurants.Next door is the historic Menger Hotel, a Teddy Roosevelt haunt that has a lot of his personal artifacts on display. Equal distance south is Hemisfair Park with the landmark Tower of the Americas, holding a 750foot observation deck and revolving restaurant. A few blocks further south is the King William Arts District. Walk north of the hotel and youll be in The Pearl, the start of the Broadway cultural corridor. This is definitely a city where youll want to come early or linger longer.14'
